cutting was to preserving their own culture. you know and then there are more personal questions like whether my mother has been cut. i am determined to find out more about the different reasons why f. jam continues and to understand better what's needed to end it. i've come to somaliland because together with the rest of somalia it has the highest. two female genital mutilation in the world. is banned in most countries but here it's still legal.
in somaliland children mostly caught between the ages of six and eight. but. after come to the afghans of our geisha the capital to meet a traditional cutter. has been cutting girls for over forty years around twenty five a day a tap peak. how many girls have you got what you look about and what type of cuts have you performed on the girls and i couldn't follow why entire leg. little yeah. yeah and this italy good new chorus. done by little i. said the hell out so would you for. now q so know why entire this week.

this is how big the opening is only this but. and you're supposed to urinate from this when you're a teenager mr asian go through this whole. over ninety percent of girls in somaliland are cut by traditional cutters. unlike most have no medical training. most girls and women here have had the for rooney and i want to know the consequences. i'm a bit a senior midwife at the local hospital. you know really beautiful thank you very much she was born in somalia and with moved to freedom of the result of the civil war. ninety ninety nine i decided to come back to move something for most people because i most needed here how have you been involved in the fight
against. cases which will help those who have fibro fibro to say too much. which is which form is the collected blood. the blood if the space is very small the ministership cannot go out or if the mantle in the ghetto gets the ministration there will be something left in the uterus this will form. this becomes bigger people who see this she has. a baby in her stomach so the doctor takes out this and the girl will be ok. i have help from the megan maternity hospital in arkansas. and. i want to live it was priceless we're going to see who said what. to do that week and of counselors carry out educational outreach work in the
community. or have a love affair out of the little boy. or from the. only way you give it. a lie in my life my money. was there how had i knew that i had i mean. that's my reality actually. what i was. wants to discuss her house worries with the counselors. she's eighteen and pregnant with her first child. she's had to for i want to cut.
globally it takes time to leave the culture grandmothers and mothers as they still hold on with the suturing and if g.m. is special the grandmothers are very very close or they are there they will not leave it there was a lady who had three girls she came to me at the hospital i told her to go back to the home and see i did the operation she is very killer for describing mother when the guests are going to authorities she goes after them she listen is the most of their. oh because the girl is circumcised they're small most with their with how do you because it is like a drop this big stick. she cried she said all my daughter gets out all you need to like a boy says what you did you did nothing do you think that eventually
people will abandon this eventually but didn't take time. as i watch these young people at a wedding reception i wonder how many of the men would be willing to marry an uncut woman in the future. for saying a local journalist posted an afghan message on social media i was curious to know why i did the facebook update of where you said some men believe f.d.m. to do a woman's sexual desire they say this increases her appeal what made you write this i want to talk because it's problem for us. to say against the down human.
of the goddess a human in our midwest when you would get my do you want to my family have cut their own cut and cut ok are you married no you want to be someone who is cut or non-corrupt. who you really. should get some of. my heart in live and grow your own little house. nothing it's all that i in a lot of time which. i am a woman. i come from a culture that also practices that i'm not the cup. i know other woman based on what other women have told me that if there is no there is no good in it if they tell you this is hurting us this is literally killing us and we need to stop we do then listen. to the committee.
and make. the dog whistle. i'm surprised that a young man should feel so strongly about holding on to this tradition when so harmful. if ever g.m. is to end changing men's attitudes will be essential. to have not done university hospital collects detailed information on trends in female cutting. medicare since two thousand and two all antenatal patients are asked what kind of cuts have had and if they intend to cut their daughters.
this is rare to see a woman who is. my daughter. in two thousand and two ninety seven percent a female patient had undergone the pharaonic cut. most intended the thing for their daughters. but that has changed. improvement in the time. and the return to the other having inter one to which they calls. it a risk getting cut. so. one is the one. tip but tied to a dick at a half of the troops we know or cuts doesn't have any benefits. i just. want to my friend dr shapiro introduces me to a friend who's at the hospital on a postnatal liver birth order disagree. with her interesting
verse of the circle and stop. with the midwife and know the harmful effects of for only cutting from passing experience. something else all. the time. so if you. want to you i can't. close. my whole lot of secondly you are coward why don't you talk. the first of all the way i feel when a sixteen year. demonstration secondly. i feel. bad you don't get to see this problem is. there some cycle communication i feel and i feel and talk on the question with a merry go round. to go for the cut and never forget that to me
he. said if it. did you feel any resentment towards your mother and your grandmother yeah but when other share her condition. as i'm leaving somalia i feel privileged to have met a woman who share the stories with me. but i'm overcome with emotion as i realize virtually every women here have been caught. and what it actually means. i've always known about the numbers and the facts and the figures but when you come face to face to all women who've gone through it it seems like the woman who after indoors and the children were after indoors as you go through cycles of pain.
for what. has happened to so many women and girls like my mom. i'm so happy that. i don't know why she didn't come. but i'm so grateful. because my life would have been so much different because i feel good. over the go through the pain. to go through without either not to be able to do something that it's a it's a god given thing to peek. you can't pee. and then your premise to ration and then when you have to have sex you don't enjoy it and it's like painful . and then you have to give birth and then it just continues. i'm so grateful that. i didn't go through that and when i meet. this woman who had to go through it.
i've come to kenya to find out more about a totally different culture. with diverse cultures and traditions. the majority don't practice. including the mass cutting has been a centuries old tradition until recently. today meeting twenty eight year old not getting. myself feeling a lot of us are leading. this community nice with the only gun in her village who
refused to be cut. off my classmates who are from this community all of them up. and they didn't they were not able to. they have to find a husband for you. know almost all of them have five children and. all what a beautiful name have they been the second thought. no they have not been fact i'm so used how do you feel about not being caught. so what would you like to do when you grow up. thank you. as a result of nice's determination to end f.e.m. no young girl has been cut here since two thousand and twelve. my thigh and
a patriarchal society. and i first have to persuade the young warriors called moran's to help and the practice. recruiting douglas the leader of them runs was a beginning. what did you do nice to make them trained opinion about that jim douglas was their first doesn't work cept my while the resistance was there from all over but then again i had another trick because when i go to them i'll go with someone like that last so i'll make sure that he talks before i talk so what did you do to persuade them around in the community. it was very hard for us to continue the boys because they say that they can not. because even god is not sometimes they've she's not a woman then we need an example of some of the dead that we have seen in the community they said ok it's true and let's forget it i think it took more than five
yes i want them just to accept it now we decided to come up with some time until we came up and i prayed i said if the pentagon from this community and we want them to upgrade to become a woman we bless them then we look at the same cow that we celebrate hold together but we didn't cut so that's what we've come up with. douglas bring some of his friends or morons to meet me. yeah we mix of might it do more than ok and i might add more than do you know what actually happens when i go is cut you know get along. very nicely and i would literally move it yeah when you're loving anyone i go. i don't i am like yeah. i don't know. that i haven't gone down and i mean you know when you you know we want to let. you
know nice truth around a graphic video over to you know go with a knife. you know what i did that. we were. going to just think how do you. want to live and when they're going to do you have a daughter. how would you feel if someone said she needed to be cut and that we were going. i think it was one of the powerful tools we've been using when we address the issues of female genital mutilation and there was another very persuasive incentive for the young warriors. when we see it as
a moron as we talk and talk about sex you see most of the mortar rounds out of most of the men they say if they sleep with a company the gun is very sweet insects now that's what also contains most of them what i understood say we don't need. yeah ok so there's also a little bit. meeting the messiah in the manja gives me hope. if one woman can change attitudes in one village perhaps it's time to possible to change entire countries. thanks. on al-jazeera. after a year of mourning thailand bed's a final farewell to its longest reigning monarch. for the stories beyond the headlines for clients examines the us his role in the world liberians are preparing
